the following upstream commit introduces a major change in behavior of du
when multiple arguments are specified:


... and the issue has landed as a bug in our Bugzilla:


Was such a change in behavior intended?  I am asking as I was not able to
find it documented anywhere.  The up2date man page states:

    Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories.

..., where FILE refers to a single argument given to du.  The info 
documentation states:

    The FILE argument order affects which links are counted, and changing the
    argument order may change the numbers that `du' outputs.

However, changing the numbers is one thing and missing lines in the output
of du is quite another thing.

Could anybody please clarify the current behavior of du?  Thanks in advance!
